2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a nice amber cokor with a slightly off white head leaving very little lacing. Aromas of apple and wheat. Taste a bit of malt, wheat and a mild hoppiness that is more bitter than flavorful. The one good thing is that the flavor doesnt stick around.

Soapy malt and canned fruit aroma. Darker amber, almost tan color. Taste is generally sweet, mainly a cereal malt flavor. Soft, flush body. Has some English bitter elements, okay stuff.

first try taste extra hoppy second and third has a much better balanced taste. Had this when it was slightly warm. So coudl probably be better if it were colder

My wife brought this one back from a trip to Rochester. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky caramel-brown color with an enormous foamy tan head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was faint tart vague fruits. The flavor was bitter and tart with faint citrus and a touch of brown sugar. Medium length finish and medium body. Eh.

Bottle split with Vi and Ken. Pours an amber body with no head, some white lacing. Aroma is light vanilla malts. Mouthfeel is thin with pretty plain flavors surrounding a malty backbone and light hop and vanilla.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle- Pours a dark amber color with a nice tan head that fades to lacing.
Mild malt aroma of caramel and a hint of pine. Mild caramel flavor a bit of toasty malt and a mild bitterness with a clean finish. Medium body, smooth with a nice balance. Easy to drink a few of these without even trying. Nice change of pace beer. Another solid beer from Middle Ages.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours lightly ruddy copper with a foamy beige head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Flavor is sweetish, fruit, and possibly some not very bitter hop. But the components work really well, and the result is more tasty than most ambers. I can image this turning into Gale’s Prize Old Ale after many years. Probably not gonna happen.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer tasting at the brewery I learned that the owners of the brewery were big Monty Python and the Holy Grail fans(and were also Middle aged) and that is how they came up with the brewery’s name.
Poured copper color with a ton of tan foam. Aroma is a nice blend of malts, some light hops and apple. The flavor begins with a mix of apples and sweet malts. It’s followed by a malty and slightly bitter middle and an aftertaste of some hops. The finish is very clean and hoppy.
